Amphenol’s Latest Connection System Incorporates Power and Signal Contacts in a Single Connector
27 November 2015
Amphenol Industrial Products Group, a global leader in interconnect systems, now offers a product that incorporates both power and signal contacts in a single connector. Amphe-RXS utilises Amphenol’s RADSOK terminals as power contacts and standard or high vibration (AHVB) signal terminals to produce an all-inclusive connector.
Its unique design, makes this robust, mixed connector perfect for devices and systems where space is at a premium, such as 3-phase electric motors, hybrid or electric vehicles, motorcycles, scooters, as well as material handling systems.
The Amphe-RXS incorporates Amphenol’s RADSOK technology for higher amperage, lower t-rise, less resistance and lower mating forces. These power terminals can range in size from 2.4 mm to 5.7 mm (up to 120 A continuous), while its signal terminals are available from size 22 to size 16.
The new all-in-one connection system can accommodate a variety of easy locking solutions ranging from plastic lock tabs to small screws. Lever locks or large jack screws, which are bulky, complex and often unreliable, are not needed due to the lower mating forces of the RADSOK.
The cost-effective Amphe-RXS offers a variety of custom options to meet the needs of any user including; sealing methods, crimp/solder or PCB mountings, as well as shielding or blind mating. The connectors can also be overmolded with leads for a value added solution.
